No Coward Soul Is Mine (Emily Brontë)

No Coward Soul Is Mine

By Emily Brontë

No coward soul is mine
No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere
I see Heaven’s glories shine
And Faith shines equal arming me from Fear

O God within my breast
Almighty ever-present Deity
Life, that in me hast rest,
As I Undying Life, have power in Thee

Vain are the thousand creeds
That move men’s hearts, unutterably vain,
Worthless as withered weeds
Or idlest froth amid the boundless main

To waken doubt in one
Holding so fast by thy infinity,
So surely anchored on
The steadfast rock of Immortality.

With wide-embracing love
Thy spirit animates eternal years
Pervades and broods above,
Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates and rears

Though earth and moon were gone
And suns and universes ceased to be
And Thou wert left alone
Every Existence would exist in thee

There is not room for Death
Nor atom that his might could render void
Since thou art Being and Breath
And what thou art may never be destroyed.

Dear Diary,

Today I started thinking.

I thought about faith, which is just a belief in something that cannot be seen. But faith is that one thing in which I have complete trust.
Combined with after-life, faith is that one thing that makes me think I can overcome any fear.
But faith is also there to encourage.

Today I started thinking.
In my soul, there is this part which pervades everything.
It’s the part where God is present, always.
And by believing in the everlasting life, anyone should posses this part, in which I feel the deity’s power.

Today I started thinking.
In man’s souls, there are those creeds I cannot speak about. Vain.
And it is sad because those creeds, this vain, distracts them from the most important thing.

But to change that, instead of holding on to the infinity, they should have trust and faith in something more solid.
But my belief, my creed cannot be changed by vain.

Today I started thinking
Again and again I thought about how strong I feel by believing in god.
Because of this power, I know there is a live after death. Because of this power I am not afraid for death anymore

Today I started thinking
I thought that if there was nothing left, no earth, no moon, and even the universe stopped existing, life still exists in deity.
God has always been present, he is present, and he will always be present.
Today I started thinking
Again, again and again I thought about the undying life.
Death cannot and wil never overcome my belief, my creed in that One who gave me the power.

The power to live forever.
